Group Formation and Submission Guidelines

It is required that you complete this assessment as a group with up to four members. Group membership must be finalised by the end of week 3 and you need to inform your campus lecturer of the group details. It is advisable that you form your own groups with students in your class. If you are having difficulty in forming a group, seek the advice of your campus lecturer. Flex students should refer all issues to the Course Coordinator.

However,if required because of personal circumstances, it may be possible to do the assignment alone. In order to do the assignment alone, you will need to seek the approval of your campus lecturer.

The coversheet for the group assignment must outline the names and IDs of all the group members. All group members must submit the same report on Moodle. If all group members do not submit the same report, marks will not be allocated. Your marker will pick one member’s report from Moodle. The same mark will be applied to all the members of a group. Penalties will also be shared amongst the group. Hence, it is important that all members submit the report on time and ensure that it is free of any plagiarism too.

My order went 3 hours late and I also went mad. Then the customer support team calmed me down and offered me a flat discount of 50%. However, I did get my order and chilled out as the work was exactly what I requested. Next time I would place my order a bit sooner to save any trouble.
